The GM-12 offers the same attention to detail and quality found in Kawai's larger pianos – in a petite size to fit any room. The action design and components are comparable to those in our GE and RX Series pianos to provide outstanding touch and playability. The Millennium III Action and "Soft-Fall" fallboard closing system help make the GM-12 one of the premier instruments in its class.
ELEMENTS OF GM SERIES EXCELLENCE
Steel Reinforced, Anti-Warp Keyslip
The GM Series keyslips are reinforced with a heavy-gauge steel inside liner that prevents warping or bending in any direction. Keys move freely with virtually no possibility of rubbing or sticking against the inside of the keyslip.
Steel Reinforced Keybed
The GM Series keybeds are made of extremely strong, laminated hardwoods. Kawai also reinforces each keybed with an underside steel support beam for maximum stability.
Fully Laminated Beams
The beams are made of select hardwood laminates, glued together under pressure, making them virtually isotropic (equally strong in all directions) and impervious to weather changes and warpage. Our LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) construction method creates beams that are many times stronger than ones made of solid wood.
GM Series pinblocks are laminated with a minimum of 11 cross-banded layers of hard rock maple. Lamination provides more strength, greater pressure and more balanced torque on the tuning pins for superior tuning stability.
In 1997, Kawai’s Ryuyo Grand Piano facility became the first manufacturing plant in the piano industry to receive ISO 14001, the world’s foremost certification for excellence in environmental management. In 1998, Kawai was privileged to receive a second ISO 14001 certification recognizing exceptional achievement in re-forestation, energy conservation, waste reduction and natural resource preservation at our highly respected Maisaka Upright Piano Factory. In 1999, Kawai made history for a third time when ISO 14001 certification was awarded to our Märchen Digital Piano Facility. This unceasing pursuit of environmental excellence is our way of showing that we care about our world... and you.
